Food sales and recipes June 28
It’s hot, hot, HOT down here in the Big Easy, and you may be feeling a little over the ordeal of cooking. But if you put in the work today, then you will be spared the bulk of cooking for the rest of the week, so don’t skip it. Some of the hottest areas of the world – Mexico, India, Thailand, for example – are also famous for their spicy dishes. Hot foods can fool us into feeling cooler, believe it or not. So I’m including some spicy dishes along with the sales this week to help you keep your cool as we approach the 4th of July holiday.
Chicken leg quarters: .39/lb. This is the most over-looked cut of meat, in my opinion. It’s easy and oddly satisfying to break down chicken leg quarters into drumsticks and thighs, and a whole lot cheaper than buying them already separated. Give it a shot. Here’s a tutorial. How to separate drumsticks and thighs
Creole Tomatoes: $1/lb. These are only here for a short time. Make a salsa or just eat them like apples – we do at my house.
Chicken thighs or drumsticks family pack: .99/lb. If you don’t want to cut up your own leg quarters, this is actually a cent cheaper than the whole ones at WD. And here’s a recipe for the yummy thighs. Add more pepper or chilis if desired. Primal Palate Spicy Thighs
Boneless Ribeyes: $5.99/lb. You will not find cheaper steaks anywhere. I like to price match these at Wal-Mart, because I’m not crazy about Sav-A-Lot’s meat sections. Buy enough to put a few in the freezer.
Boneless Pork Loin: $1.65/lb. You don’t have to cook a whole pork loin. When you buy this cut, it’s easy peasy to slice up your own pork chops. This way, you can make them as thick or thin as you like, and it’s cheaper than the presliced.
Red or Yellow Mangoes: $1 for two. These would be very refreshing in this salad Spicy mango salad.
Avocados: $4 for two 3-avocado bags. Guacamole? Yes, with extra chiles. I use serranos, not jalapenos in mine. Serranos are more consistently hot, and have a nice fruity brightness.
